Iron Gall Ink, For Modern Calligraphy

by À L'aise



Iron Gall Calligraphy Ink. Handmade in our London studio using natural mica powder & binders to create a super opaque shimmery ink.

made from:

This ink is handmade in our Dorset studio using natural ingredients to a medieval recipe with a modern twist. Iron Gall ink is the perfect black ink for modern calligraphy. Traditionally Iron Gall ink erodes nibs quickly due to it's high acidity, our ink has powdered egg shell added to balance the Ph, meaning nibs last much longer.

Our inks are water based and if it is too thick for your nib, a drop water can be added to dilute the ink. If the ink is too watery you can leave the ink with the lid off for the ink to evaporate slightly, we advise overnight.

This ink is water based and over time will naturally evaporate, you can add a drop of water to bring it back to the desired consistency.

I test all inks with a Zebra G nib, but most pointed pen nibs will work. Different nibs will create a slightly different look.
